Crime is rising. More than 700,000 commercial buildings were burglarized in 2005 and employee theft is estimated to exceed $10 billion a year. Fire and explosions cost businesses another $2.3 billion annually, and they kill or injure thousands of workers. Workplace violence, lawsuits and false insurance claims can also put a significant strain on your business and security resources.
Traditional security systems aren't doing the job. One out of four forced entries today are through unconventional entry points, so they circumvent conventional perimeter protection. What's more, more than 90 percent of alarms are false. False alarms take valuable law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel away from real emergencies and make your alarm system less credible - reducing response time. Many jurisdictions now levy fines for excessive false alarms - and a growing number won't respond without some form of alarm verification.
